The Amazing Nancy Boy Shaving Cream

 Whenever I take a break from shaving soaps and use a cream on my YouTube channel I get lots of questions. The one that comes up the most is out of all the shaving creams you use which ones would be the best. I usually follow this up with what is true to me all shaving creams are great they all offer the best possible slickness and glide compared to shaving soap even if that soap is tallow-based.

If you're looking for a unique experience then one does not need to go any further than Nancy Boy Signature Scent. Rated among the top ten shaving creams in the world this one is made with premium ingredients and the company motto “Better Ingredients Make Better Products”

Shaving & Talking #10 Featuring St James Of London

In this week's Shaving & Talking we bring out the glass jar of St James of London. This was a gift from a subscriber who after purchasing reacted to the cedarwood scent. He enjoyed the scent very much but had to give it up due to the irritation it caused.

The glass jar packaging stands out amongst all the rest of the creams I’ve used over the years. A simple label on the screw-on tin top and another side label denoting the scent. On the bottom is a warning label along with the amounts 5.07 FL oz, website, and made in England moniker.

Murphy & McNeil - The Cliffs Of Moher

About a month ago we did a review on Claddagh a Murphy & McNeil shaving soap sample. Today we continue with another sample called The Cliffs Of Moher. Now I’ve never been to Ireland but if the Cliffs of Moher smells anything like this scent I’ll be packing my bags for a flight over tonight.

The packaging of the samples is great for consumers. They have this reusable seal that allows you to keep things fresh for your next shave. A little goes a long way and with only 0.5oz this is a good thing.

Last shave of 2021 Welcome 2022!


Well, here we are at the last shave of 2021 and it sure has been a wild ride for everyone. The thing that has kept me going was seeing my wife after almost 2 years no one was allowed into the nursing home. She suffered from not seeing any of her family members altho we did do FaceTime but it was just not the same. I noticed it changed her not only physically but mentally.

I now see her every day after work which she started to show improvement almost immediately and I also demanded P/T to get her back to where she used to be physically they just let her sit in bed most of the time. I also have been watching lots of Netflix, HBO, Amazon, Etc… and this has made its way to my youtube videos suggesting something to watch.

Mongoose Razor • Mr. Warlock • School Of Chocolate

Today we use Mr. Warlock the mongoose Razor and we talk about a series called The School of Chocolate.

Mr. Warlock has been around for some time and is available year-round. I think it's the eucalyptus that makes this shaving soap so special. I’ve never experienced it in any other shaving soap like this one. Unfortunately, we are currently all out of Mr. Warlock and have been thinking about giving him a rest for a while but that’s still up in the air for 2022.

Shaving & Talking 9 Featuring Vanilla Tobacco Tallow Version

I’d like to bring to your attention a new segment on my YouTube channel called Shaving & Talking. So far I've done nine including the one I’m releasing this week. The conversations range from movies and TV shows most of the time but on occasion, it's about things that happen to me personally. I always try to have a conversation with you catching up on things that have happened in my life and if anyone responds with a question I always try to answer them as soon as I can.

Today is another shaving and talking and this time we discuss the comedian Bill Burr. I’ve seen his act and I have to tell you for me he’s entertaining. Forever stepping ever so slightly over the line and then coming right back which makes me hang on to hear what he has to say next.

Sweet Comb Chicago - Rogers Park

It's been a min since the last time I shaved with Sweet Comb Chicago and today we have something new called Rogers Park. Now one of the ingredients in this soap is beeswax which must be the reason this shaving soap has such great lather I’ve never seen such a lather before with any other artisan’s soap.

The packaging is very attractive a black tin with a push-on lid a beautifully done logo of a bee right on top with circular large letters announcing the company and the product name.

The scent Is amazing the website describes it as scented with horchata’s notes of rice pudding, vanilla, and cinnamon, and man that is so accurate. This scent will not let you down it presents when you open the tin right until you are done with the shave and then some.
